Overview

According to the Bible, Methusaleh's 969-year life was the longest in recorded history. Many others around his time also lived for centuries. But as the years wore on, human beings' lifespans became shorter and shorter.

All throughout history, mankind has been curious about living longer. These days, we live much longer than our ancestors, but we're nevertheless obsessed with improving our life expectancy. While the Fountain of Youth is only folklore, we do still wonder what we can do to live healthier and longer lives. And although living much beyond a hundred is nearly impossible, recent scientific findings do give us insight into the truth about longevity.

In 2009, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn earned a shared Nobel Prize with two of her colleagues for the discovery of the nature of a new cell component that completely changes our understanding of the aging process. Learn all about this cell component, and how you can use it to your advantage, in The Telomere Effect.
